Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-450
Submitted October 1, 2007 – Filed October 10, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, of Columbia, for Appellant

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; Warren Blair Giese, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Appellant, Shawn Thomas, pled guilty to second degree criminal sexual conduct.  The trial judge sentenced him to fifteen years imprisonment to run concurrently with a prior sentence.  Thomas’s counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that he had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  Thomas did not file a separate pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss[1] the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, CJ., HUFF, and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
